great fried chicken, chicken wings, fried chicken liver plate, milk shakes, and fries. next time I will ask to pour my own dressing on the salad, there was too much.

Ron Higdon

Oh my goodness ya'll this place is the real deal!! Sorry mom, this is probably the best fried chicken I've ever had. The fries and slaw were excellent as well. All the staff was super friendly and made us feel welcome and at home. If you pass this way on your way to the Redneck Riviera, you have to stop and eat.

True southern Accent

This a great Southern Restaurant. They don’t mash the potatoes they cream them. Best fried chicken and best sweet Tea. The banana pudding was great.

Lee McGowan

I had an awful experience the waitress was mean and rude I wanted vegetables and she said no vegetables before 11 am it would be nice if they let people know this the food is really good I will go back and only sit in Debbies section she is awesome nice and amazing this chick was not nice maybe take some lessons from Debbie or find another career cause if you are not nice and don’t treat people good you will not get good tips or any just saying

Cute little pit stop...BIG FLAVOR food!

I visited the restaurant because almost a year ago I read in a magazine that this restaurant was voted #1 for the best chicken in Alabama. The one's that voted must have never eaten chicken anywhere else. DISGUSTING is an understatement! The chicken tasted like it was spoiled and they fried it anyway. I couldn't even chew it! Maybe it's just the guests that are passing through they serve their slop to. I guess the locals and magazine publishers get the good stuff. So if you're just passing through DO NOT stop here!

Mike Niemeyer

This was a surprisingly satisfying stop for my vacationing family. We were extremely happy with the food, service and the pricing. Your dollar goes a long way here.

Diana Martin

The best place to eat in this small town. The food is good if you love fried everything. The chicken is very good. The service could have been better. The restaurant was very clean.

Marcus Bradley

Delicious food at a competitive price... Stick to the lunch menu if youre on a budget as well as a time schedule though cause It takes a while if you order off the regular menu, but either way it's great. My favorite place to eat in Luverne.

Carol Neiger

Angel Bundy

Since it's the only place pretty much in luverne area you can sit down the people are friendly and it is a bit overpriced for what we get

Ted Painton

Always good and quick.

Belynn Mount

Number one chicken in the State

I've been eating at the Chicken Shack since it first opened & I was a much younger person. Not much has changed over the years and that's just fine. As the name suggests, chicken is the feature. Fried golden brown and tasty. Lunches feature a meat & three for an extremely reasonable price. Service is swift and cordial. They usually fill up quick with regulars and locals - but you won't wait long, even on Sundays after Church. There aren't too many restaurants in Luverne - but I'd go there even if there was a restaurant on every corner. You'll be made to feel very welcome and leave feeling more than satisfied. Southern charm & hospitality rule the day.

DL Wilson

This restaurant has be voted best fried chicken in Alabama. Yep its definitely delicious and worth the trip. The restaurant is clean and the staff is warm and welcoming. The trip to Luverne is a pleasant drive if you're driving from out of town.

Scott Singleton

Spicy Chicken fingers and fries were good. Didn't like the coleslaw. Service was friendly.

Megan Peters

Eric Washington

Jeff Jackson

Their desserts and chicken is delicious

Cindy Bailey

Love the fried chicken! Been wanting some and finally made the trip from Grady yo get it!! Awesome food. Thx

Maggie CR

Apparently this place is very famous for their prize winning fried chicken, lots of people in line ordering it. I had a grilled fish since I don't eat fried foods. Honestly, I didn't care for it and the portion was very tiny. According to the people of the area they have the best fried chicken ever. It is necessary to call and order in advance, otherwise you will have to wait a long time due to the large clientele they have.

Rusty Wood

Old town favorite

Princess B Kelly

Always good. Lunch specials are fantastic for the price. Chicken is the best In the state. Very clean.

Indiana Homestead

Oh my! Really great fried chicken and better yet...the prices are great! They have many comfort food sides to choose from to add to their specials. Like Lima beans, collard greens, rice, slaw, mashed potatoes, peach cobbler. Etc. You won't be disappointed. 4 adults, 1 child....bill $22....including drinks . The parking lot is on the north side of the building. Take-out is in front and dine-in is in the back. Enter in the back to seat yourself anywhere you can find to suit your number of guests. Very friendly staff and great service. Crowded on Sundays after church lets out.

Ace Wolf

We drove an hour to eat here. The chicken was fabulous! Great Service!

Stephanie Garza

Heather Moran

Best chicken evvvvveeeeerrrrr!

Todd Rhodes

The best southern cooking in Luverne

Cornelia Thrash

HORRIBLE!!! OLD NASTY COLD CHICKEN! It tasted spoil! $7.00 for this plate and it DID NOT come with a drink. I don't mind paying for food that is at least edible. I guess only the locals get the good food. So if you're only passing through I advise you NOT to stop here! I have had better chicken from a convenience store.

Stopped by for late lunch. Ordered from the lunch specials; fried chicken, steamed cabbage, and red potatoes. Oops! No red potatoes left so got green beans. Came with hushpuppy style cornbread, and I drank unsweetened tea. Meat Is $3.00; additional lunch sides are $1.00 each. Food is good. 3 meats and about 8 sides (including dessert) to choose from. The place has been here forever;. Really enjoyed it and will go back.

Scott Mullins

Ok, where do I start with this place. We were told this place had great chicken hand they sure did not disappoint. My chicken did not taste like restaurant chicken. It tasted like home cooked chicken. It was fantastic. My wife loves seafood and loved it. The service was incredible also. I wish I got our waitresses name but we encountered 4 different employees and all were great. We came in about 30 minutes before closing and still were treated great. We actually live about 2 hours away from Luverne but will seriously consider going all that way just to eat there. It was that good. Loved this place!

Rick Palomino

Service was great, waitress very nice and friendly. Ordered fried chicken and was not disappointed Atmosphere was great.

carswell enterprises

Friendly, clean , good food

Dee Bberry

Excellent fried chicken!! We always stop in on our way to Florida and again on our way home! This time we missed it going to FL because it was Sunday at noon when we got to the Chicken Shack & the parking lot was full, there were no seats empty inside. When we stopped on the way home, the fried chicken was great! The service wasn't or I would've given five stars. But this was the only time we had such service here... everyone's allowed a bad day now & then.

Brenda Scott

Ok. French fries and coleslaw good. Liver and gizzards over cooked and cooked too fast. Chicken tenders pretty good.

Debra Grant

The best fried chicken in south Alabama!

brandi adkisson

The BEST fried chicken that I have ever had!! Stopped here on a whim heading back to Knoxville, TN from our vacation in PCB. I ordered the fried chicken, chicken and dumplings and fried okra (I know, not the healthiest, but hey, I was hungry!) and just let me say..... man, it was AHHHHMAZING!! Anyone out there who eats fried chicken knows that usually the skin taste great, but the meat usually has bland flavor. This chicken had amazing crust AND the flavor of the meat was out of this world!!! The chicken and dumplings - YUM!!! Keep doing what you’re doing chicken shack! I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone!! To boot, the people are super friendly and the service is exceptional!

Bridget Berry
